L401 Hinksey 14 March 1987

It wasn't much use taking any notice of DMU destination blinds in the Oxford area in the 1980s! However this was probably understandable here as L401 (51333, 59485, & 51375) is forming a hastily organised Oxford to Reading relief service due to the late running of 47515 on an inter regional service. Even in normal circumstances it was quite common to see units displaying a destination that they had either just come from or was at least in the opposite direction! 14 March 1987.
